  • Overview

    This exciting new course is about how legislation is made, interpreted, administered and enforced with reference to regulatory law. We will examine the important aspects of regulatory law which is among the most prevalent and powerful sources of law that you will encounter as a legal practitioner or a citizen. The course deals with the role of regulators, how regulatory systems are designed, operated and enforced, how they provide for democratic control, quality decision-making, transparency in decision-making and access to justice for those who wish to question the substantive and procedural merits of decisions. The skills that you will acquire in this course will transfer to other courses and to your jobs, whether you work for a private firm, a non-profit group, or a government organization. They will also enable you to understand and evaluate the structure and operation of our national government better.
